Yousuf Delivers Lahore Lion’s Captaincy to Hafeez

Yousuf passes Lions’ captaincy to Hafeez

LAHORE: The former Pakistan batsman Mohammad Yousuf, has passed on the captaincy of the Lahore Lions team to Mohammad Hafeez, the national team’s T20 captain, for the ongoing National T-20 Cup to help the latter gain experience.

“Yousuf himself surrendered his captaincy and offered Hafeez to guide the side,” Lahore City Cricket Association president Khawaja Nadeem said. “It’s a great sign from a great player to let Hafeez get experience as captain. I have happily accepted his decision.”

Hafeez, who was appointed the Pakistan T20 captain in May this year, wasn’t judged for the role originally. But minutes before the Lions’ first match against Karachi Zebras at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, Yousuf announced his decision.

Hafeez has been playing for his local side Faisalabad Wolves in the national twenty20 cup since 2004. But this year, being a resident of Lahore city, chose to represent Lions – a side possessing nine international cricketers.
